Ian O'Doherty: Now you see them, now you don't

So, what did you think of Glastonbury? Frankly, the idea of slogging through acres of mud is not a very appealing one, but it's a different story when you're watching from the comfort of your own couch, and Friday night promised two treats -- the God that is Morrissey and U2.

And why was I so eager to see U2 when I don't even like them?

Well, two reasons -- even their biggest begrudgers will admit that they know how to put on a show and after 30 years in the game they have no shortage of a set list. But I was primarily interested in seeing how the activist group Art Uncut's protest against the band moving their corporate tax affairs to Holland would play out.
